Alicia and Julius Cain represent a former professional hockey player, Grant Duverney, who is suing the maker of his snowmobile after the steering locked causing an accident that led to his wife's death. When it appears they are about to lose the case, the defendants lawyer raises issues related to injuries Duverney may have suffered as a hockey player and which may have contributed to the accident. Alicia then suggests they also sue the hockey league which brings her up against her old nemesis, Louis Canning, who has a surprise for her: a job offer, one that Alicia may not be able to refuse if she wants to buy her old house. Meanwhile, Diane Lockhart finds herself with two men in her life and Will Gardner is doing his best to keep his nose out of the firm's business while he is under suspension. Written by garykmcd

Better to Leave on the Gloves **1/2
18 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Disappointing episode. Michael J. Fox is back representing the hockey league in a lawsuit aimed against them. While I sympathize that Fox is suffering from Parkinson's Disease in real life, he is mumbling on the show and that causes one to lose total focus on what is occurring.

As Louis Canning, Fox is playing appropriate to his name,he is very sly and cunning. He offers Alicia a position with higher salary, therefore taking her away from Lockhart-Gardner.

The original suit was based on an ex-hockey player's wife getting killed as the result of a snowmobile accident. This is all quickly lost when the hockey organization is brought into the play.

Suddenly, Diane has become a desired woman. Remember how she would look at Will with suspicion after she'd see him talking to Alicia? Will had that same look when he saw Diane laughing on the telephone.

Fred Thompson guest-starred as an attorney involved in the suit. No wonder his candidacy for the presidency failed in 2008.
